DETROIT (AP) - A man has been arrested in the fatal shooting of his 43-year-old mother during a fight at the family’s home in northwest Detroit.

Police say Friday that the 26-year-old man was arguing about 9 p.m. Thursday with his 46-year-old father when a handgun dropped from his father’s waistband.

The younger man picked up the gun and fired two shots striking his mother who was pronounced dead at an area hospital.

The case is expected to be presented to the prosecutor’s office for possible charges.
